Black and white abstract art doodles

I wanted to try out using white gel pen on black card, as I always love the contrast that black and white gives you. So I bought some black card from an art shop and started doodling to see what I could create, but more importantly did I like it? Well…….yes and no.

I love contrast and white pen on a black background gives you plenty of it, but, as much as I like it, I also miss the colour. Colour gives it a ‘feeling’ or ‘mood’, and it’s hard to create that with only two colours. So to give my illustration a bit more interest, I made some of the lines thick and some thin. Other areas I added lots of texture and lines, whereas others I left quite plain and empty. I’m hopeful that this will help the artwork to stand out and provide plenty of interest.

Please feel free to leave a comment below! This is a new type of art for me so it would be great to hear everyone’s thoughts. Have you done this type of art yourself? If so let us know by leaving a comment on this post. I love hearing about other people’s art and their tips or suggestions. Afterall this helps us all, so don’t be shy 🙂

I’m hoping to add some more details in white before adding some black pen details here and there. Then it will be finished!
